it wasn’t so much a party as an outdoors vodka fest… but it was fuuun. Umm… I haven’t got many tips except don’t wimp out of going to 1 and vodka slurpies r nice. 6 years ago
How I did it: So I arranged some people to meet up. They brought the vodka. Even though I arranged it,I didn't really do much 2 make it happen, it just did. I was lucky, people brought friends and it just got bigger and bigger. I didn't know many people there and that made it more exciting. There was a lot of flirting and a lot of people hitting on people. Because it was my first time and with the vodka everyone was VERY forward, I was a bit afraid to do anything, but others did. I almost wish I had done some things with the guys but I know I would have felt bad. Next time I'd start a harmless game of spin the bottle and think up some other drinking games.

There are a couple of ways to have a vodka party – either at your place, reserving a spot at a restaurant, or reserving a bar. It is FAR cheaper to have it as a house party, and the theme possibilities are extensive. I had a “put cheap vodka through a brita filter” theme, and after 4 runs through a brita it actually tasted ok, but then again, it could have been that we were comparing each filtering run to controls of grey goose and chopin and could barely stand by that point. Or you could have an ice luge and vodka-pong competition. Just make sure you have plenty of place for people to crash afterwards, and that you’re ready to deal with massive hangovers (and perhaps some cleanup) the next day. Another note – drunk DDR is very difficult.
A good russain restaurant is more expensive. We ended up paying about 45 a person for appetisers and several different brands of vodka. The restaurant did not allow us to bring our own vodkas, so we had to stick to whatever they had, which was not a very wide ranging selection (5 different kinds). But the restaurant had a dance floor and a DJ, making for a very fun night once the people losened up. Make sure you have the travel arranged for everyone ahead of time, and that people who drive stop drinking at least 2 hours prior to driving. Also make sure that people pace each other – novices tend to get drunk fast and make unpleasant messes.
Clubs are more expensive still, costing about 300 (at a low end) to reserve a private area on a weeknight at a popular spot, and then extra for the alcohol. But if you can gather a large enough crowd, and figure out how to make them pay up, it could be as little as 50 bux a person. The advantages are that you’re not limited to mingling with just your guests, and the DJs are far better. The selection of vodkas can also be quite extensive, depending on the place.
Of course, all this is only legal for those 21 and over. Boston police have a surprisingly low tolerance for drunk underage kids. And, as a medical note, make sure that people know their limits before they start drinking. Make sure diabetics, people on antidepressants or antibiotics, and, again, anyone under 21 are NOT drinking. The consequences (including hospitalizations) are not worth the few hours of fun. Spread the shots out over a long time, and have at least a couple of designated sober people to take care of financial and other matters.
Good luck, and enjoy responsibly! 8 years ago
